Do or Die is a 1991 action movie, the sixth in Andy Sidaris' “Bullets, Bombs and Babes” (a.k.a. “L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies”) film series. In this film agents Donna Hamilton (Dona Speir) and Nicole Justin (Roberta Vasquez) are targets of hunt, organised by crime lord Masakana 'Kane' Kaneshiro (Pat Morita) who sends six two-person teams to assassinate the girls. But Donna and Nicole, with the help of their colleagues, successfully survive all attacks and are victorious.
